“I feel like I have a powerful support system. Knowing that I can get whatever I need – from a ride to the store to assistance in my home – has given me peace of mind.”
Taking the right medication at the right time. Keeping her home tidy and preparing meals. Getting to doctor’s appointments. For Barbara, it suddenly felt like more than she could handle. Her kids pitched in as much as they could, but they had their own busy lives. She was excited to find out that she could get help in her own home, tailored to her needs. “I feel like I have a powerful safety net. Knowing that I can get whatever I need, from a ride to the store to help with my medication, has given me peace of mind.”

Home Care Assistance
Receive assistance with the tasks of daily life without leaving the comfort and familiarity of your own home. Private duty aides can prepare your meals and help with light housekeeping, laundry and transportation, bathing, dressing, medication reminders and toileting. Sometimes the most important service can be companionship: being a good listener, playing cards or driving you to meet up with friends. The care plan is tailored to your needs, whether you contract for a minimum three-hour service visit or round-the-clock assistance. Every staff member is trained as a State Tested Nurse Aide (STNA), has earned a home health aide certification or has many years of experience caring for older adults.
